Eugene Chadbourne in Orlando circa 2019

Here’s a nice holiday surprise: A late addition to the Will’s concert calendar this week is inimitable DIY outsider-maestro Eugene Chadbourne.

Through a decades-long career of avowedly sticking to the margins despite formidable multi-instrumental chops, Chadbourne has tried a little bit of everything — from noisy skronk to free jazz to high lonesome sounds — most of which has been high-quality and proudly self-released.

What Chadbourne will do this time around is play ancient and mysterious folk-related music in tandem with bassist Dave Menestres. His 2019 set at (also) Will’s was a thing of skeletal wonder. Do not miss.

8 p.m., Monday, Dec. 5, Will’s Pub, 1040 N. Mills Ave., willspub.org, $10.
